Bereavement Support

Coping with grief and loss

Bereavement Support

If you are grieving for the loss of a loved one to dementia and need help to process your feelings, we partner with The White Lily Centre for bereavement support.


The White Lily Centre offer Grief Journey bereavement support groups. Each group of 6 – 8 people is gently guided through an eight-week programme aimed at discovering how we, as individuals, may experience our own journey through grief and loss. 

Grief Journey groups are open to adults of any age, all are welcome. In friendly, non-judgmental meetings you will find tea and cake, tears and tissues alongside laughter and love.

There is no charge to attend Grief Journey groups but you are asked to attend all 8 of the weekly meetings in the programme, as this will bring you and the rest of the group maximum benefit.

To find out more about our Grief Journey programme and to help you decide if it is right for you please feel free to give Margaret a call on 023 8044 0961.

The White Lily Centre have a compassionate team of bereavement counsellors led by Margaret Francis, who has over 10 years of experience of working with bereaved families and specialist training in Complicated Grief and Traumatic Loss.

One to one counselling can be accessed via telephone, online or face to face to suit your needs and there is no charge for this service for anyone residing in Southampton or surrounding areas. If you feel you might benefit from bereavement counselling please do call 023 8044 0961 and speak to Margaret about how they can help.

If you have been attending our support & social groups during your dementia journey you are more than welcome to keep attending, as we are here for everyone impacted by dementia past or present. Equally, anyone that has completed bereavement counselling with The White Lily Centre is welcome to join our dementia support & social groups.
